The Haines Junction Community Justice Committee operates a pre- and post-charge diversion program for the residents of Haines Junction. The Justice Committee has six members and is assisted by one staff member. It uses a community sentencing and mediation program to address referrals. The aim of the project is to prevent crime and encourage the community to play an active role in crime prevention. Sentencing circles facilitate community participation in sentencing. Healing circles address the harms associated with crime. Talking circles are used to address disputes before they become serious acts or criminal events. The Justice Committee is considering participating in a crime stoppers program. Sources for referrals include the individual, Crown, RCMP and community members. Protocol agreements are in place with the RCMP.
